Thi" Hiinoum*eiii<w»t wh * to conceal
th«’ real in«*aning «4 th«« puivhrt-v. It i*
tl»«* plan «»f the Southern Pacific to build
tlie California-N«»rtheaatern to Kl»«inath
Fall«, which was tin* r««ilte of the pr«»*
|MN»r«l r<»ad. But the b<»uth«*rn Facifi«*
will n«»t stop at that |x»int. If the route
of th«« California* Northeastern from
Wee«!, on the main line «4 the Southern
Pacific, is produml it will lie found to
run in a northeasterly direction ami
meet th«« Oregon Short Line <»f the
Southern Pacific al Huntington. This
road will completely open up the heart
of < hegoD.
This move on th«* part of the Southern
Pacific has completly outwitted the
Hill outflit. The plan of Hill was to
build a road called the San Francisco,
Idaho and Montana, which it to start at
Butte, Mont., and run in a southwest­
erly direction through Salmon City,
Boise (Idaho) and on down to Kan
Franciaco. Tbit line would oj»en up a
new stretch of territory an«l would afford
a d«*rided cut-off for travel from the
northwest, now reaching San Francisco
by way of Portland.
The plana of the Southern Pacific will
not lx* change«! *o far as the Natron
branch ia concerned. It i* poeeible,
though not probable, that a line may
run from Klamath Falla to Huntington.
Thia ia t»eing conaidered, but not aer-
ioualy, for the reason that the Oregon
Eastern to Ontario, which connects
with the Natron Klamath Falls lineal
or near the Fort, will answer the pur-
|x»ee of the Huntington line.
Appropes to the proposed Lakeview
connection, it can l»e stated poeitively
that it will l»e built. Mr. Swarthout, to
